We Had Them Eating Out of Our Hands: November 4, 2021

At Ashbridge’s Bay over time, Black-capped Chickadees have become bold enough to take feed from the hands of park visitors. One bird will flutter in front of us, land very nearby and patiently await our generosity. This year a pair of Red-breasted Nuthatches have joined in the festivities.

NATURE POETRY

The trample of robins and woodlarks on the brown leaves.
and the patter of squirrels on the green moss;
The fall of an acorn on the ground, the pattering of nuts on 
the hazel branches as they fall from ripeness.                       – John Clare (1793–1864)

Miles Hearn
